Largemouth Bass Spawning in Hamilton Harbour

This shot was taken May 29, 2015. These bass were seen right near the boat launch at Bay front Park in Hamilton, Ontario Canada. There were two pairs of two to three pound bass which were spawning. Canadian largemouth bass are generally much smaller than those found in the southern Unites States. Spawning bass usually indicate improving water quality, because this sighting means that the water is clean enough for largemouth bass to spawn in and reproduce. These urban bass have adapted to man. These two pairs will grow bigger and produce many more smaller offspring, which in turn help the fishery produce more fish in subsequent years. The spawning bass bite the tails of the other bass. These fish are fairly aggressive.
